An Irish tourist has been found dead in the swimming pool of his luxury holiday home in the Costa del Sol resort of Marbella.

His friends found him lifeless in the water on Friday morning after getting up following a night out.

Police and paramedics rushed to the house but there was nothing they could do to save the 24-year-old man and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The alarm was raised around 10.25am.

Emergency responders received a call saying a man had been pulled out of a swimming pool in a house in a residential area near Marbella called Nueva Andalucia.

One of his friends is said to have called for help and told officials they had managed to get their pal out of the water.

Local reports identified the dead man as an Irish holidaymaker.

The house where the tragedy happened has been named as Finca la Judia on a road called Camino del Angel a short drive from the millionaire’s playground of Puerto Banus which forms part of the municipality of Marbella.

Police who are preparing a report for a local court tasked with a routine investigation into the incident could not be reached early this mornin.

The dead man has not been named.

A post-mortem is expected to take place this weekend at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Malaga.

The results will be sent straight to the court and are not normally made public in Spain.

Well-placed sources said there was no obvious evidence of any foul play and everything was pointing to the young man drowning in a tragic accident.

Tissue samples will be taken during the post-mortem so medical experts can examine them to determine if alcohol or other substances could have played a part in the tragedy.

There have been no reports at this stage he had been drinking in the run-up to the incident, although the holidaymakers are believed to have stayed out till the early hours of Friday morning.

Well-respected local paper Sur said the dead man’s friends only became aware of the tragedy when they got up and spotted him in the water.

A spokesman for a regional government-run emergency response coordination centre said: “A man aged 24 died yesterday morning/on Friday morning at the swimming pool of a house in Marbella in the province of Malaga.

“The alarm was raised at 10.25am when we were told a young man appeared to have drowned in the pool of the house in a road called Camino del Angel in the Nueva Andalucia area and companions had pulled him out of the water.

“Regional government medical services and police were immediately alerted.

“Health sources later confirmed the death of the young man without informing us about what led up to it.”
